Taster glass. I think we may want to separate true Radlers from fruit beers, as a finished beer with juice or soda added before packaging is a different animal than one fermented with fruit. For one, this is intended to be low-alcohol, and for two, it’s not fair to be comparing this to a DFH Fort. That said, this is pretty tasty. Does not hide the fact that it’s light in alcohol, though probably the grapefruit adds some sugar calories. In fact, it does have a bit of an added sugar taste that might have been meant to keep the grapefruit from souring up the works. Not a world-beater, but recommended if I were ever actually "on the go."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, Embrun LCBO. Hazy medium yellow, foamy white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit juice. Taste - tart, crisp light body, gives way to some sugary aftertaste and a hint of malt at the very very end. Straight up grapefruit, lemon, and sugar without any hint of alcohol or really beer. But quite refreshing for what it is - I won’t lie - I may pick this up again for scorchers.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a small bubbly head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit juice with some residual sugar is as far remove to beer as possible. Taste is also dominated by loads of grapefruit notes with some residual sugar notes and some light wheat malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. So much sugar and grapefruit juice that it does not resemble beer anymore but enjoyable on a hot summer day nonetheless.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Murky/milky straw yellow with a very frail white head.
Aroma: Lots of grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind/oil, not as sweet as some of the other commercial versions.
Palate: Medium-light body with fairly aggressive carbonation.
Flav.: Lots of grapefruit, a little wheat character, little else; off-dry (but much more dry than other commercial examples) with plenty of grapefruit and a touch of wheat.
As far as these go, not bad.

@ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Cloudy grapefruit juice color (what else?), no head, no lace. This is more a carbonated soda than a beer - doesn’t taste bad, just seems outside the bounds of the beer definition. It is better than a coke, but that’s about the best I can offer.

Stiegl Radler (Grapefruit) has a very thick, fizzy, white head, a milky yellow, opaque appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of grapefruit, and the flavor is of grapefruit, with some background malt. No bitterness detected. Mouthfeel is medium, and Stiegl Radler (Grapefruit) finishes sweet & tart and easy drinking. RJT

At harvest clintonville. Pours like a cloudy lightly carbonated lemonade. No head. Nose is sweet grapefruit. Sweet up front with some sour bite at the end. A great summer brew and one that is great if you love grapefruit juice. This would cut thru the smokiness or spiciness of some cooked meat too.
